the old xcape plug is so solid that I can't check how its soldered, sadly. unless i take like a sledgehammer...
also its not worth me buying a multimeter unless it's really cheap. I wouldn't know what to get either.
I sent an email to sunrise audio (which i didn't even know had a website.) and maybe they can reply back sometime.
edit: lmao. just now out of curiousity I wanted to see what the plug looked like on the cable and closed them up, wires all scrunched up touching the pins. up until now I never got any sound to come out ever, then all of a sudden I heard MUSIC when I plugged them in. if only for a tiny while. that sparked a little hope in me at least :DDD.
also saving scraps from old headphones paid off. cause now i have a proper strain relief on the Rean/Neutrik plug I got. (thanks u senny cx400. R.I.P.) it looks really nice.
AND THUS UPDATE ONCE MORE:
I finally discovered the secret to headphone plugs and I feel a little noob, I held a copper wire in place to the ground while I tested each other wire on left or right channel on the plug. what did i find? red was completely useless or maybe it's ground. green was indeed left. red stripe and blue stripe seem also pretty dead. and blue...ZOMG RIGHT CHANNEL >:DD. so it looks like I found my answer guys. to all that replied (in various threads) thanks for the suggestions but in the end I came up with my own. wish me luck at the soldering part cause I already know it's another huge obstacle.
